Virgil Thomson on Erik Satie’s “Socrate”


Published March 25, 1965


Composer and music critic Virgil Thomson offers a traditional academic analysis of Erik Satie’s “Socrate,” placing the work in the context of its time and place. He compares the music of the school of Paris during the early 20th century with that of Vienna and elsewhere in Europe, paying particular attention to the role of irony and humor in both picture music and neoclassical traditions. He then provides piano accompaniment for Mariquita Moll, soprano and Larry Jarvis, tenor, in a performance of the work recorded on March 25, 1965 at the University of California in Los Angeles.
